Ok, so I've seen alot of threads lately asking pretty much the same question - "help me find the name of this song <LINK>". While it's all well and good asking questions like this, it doesnt lend itself well to a continuing thread, often getting answered in the first two or three posts and thus sinking into the abis. So I thought it'd be useful to slap together a single thread where anyone can ask this profound question.

While we are at it, here are a couple of pr0 tips and tricks to finding the title of "that song you just heard":

---Google "Lyrics"---
If the song you are after has lyrics (which alot, although not all do), you can try typing into google "Lyrics" followed by any part of the lyrics you know/can remember. This will often bring up usefull sites like "Lyrics.com" and "A-Z Lyrics mania" which will give you the full blown lyics that you can check against. If you find a match, you can then simply look up to the top of the page for the title and artist info of the song.

---Google "Songlist/Tracklist"---
If you know the name of the CD the song is off of (most comonly encountered when hearing compilation CD's like Kerang! or Now!), then you can do a google search for the tracklist (or similarly "songlist") of that album. Chances are the name of the song will be glaringly obvious, or if not then at least you will have narrowed it down to a handfull of songs.

---Youtube---
This may be obvious to some people, and to others may even be where the query originated from, but Youtube in alot of cases can help track down songs you do not know the name of. Often people post up entire music videos and slap the lyrics in their "More Detail" area, so searching for lyric fragments here can usually yield decent results. In addition, you can put in any additional information you may have got fromt he above methods to verify your findings from them. Sometimes, songs can have very similar titles to other completly different songs, or can be various covers done by different people. Youtube is a great tool for making sure you have both the right title *AND* artist *AND* version information.

---And if all else fails?---
Ask here in this thread, durr! icon_wink.gif

So, I hope that helps some of you out with some ideas you may not have thought of before. Will stick up any additional tips and tricks as they come to light, so feel free to suggest those here too. icon_wink.gif

ok... I have no idea what this song is, so bear with me.

I've heard it mostly in the background or on the radio, and can barely remember any lyrics.

It's kind of a rock song, but the guy isn't singing so much as he is talking. It's about a party or something the previous night that got crazy, and I can't think of the actual lyrics to save my life.

it's something like "that party last night got kinda crazy" something something something.

any help would be awesome.

Ok i cant remember much about the song.. all i remember is the music video.

Ok its a rock song.. and a bald guy is singing in an alleyway / street and all this water comes down the street.

all i know sorry, but i can remember its an epic song and i really want to listen to it again


i dont expect anyone to know what im talking about, but if there is the slightest chance anyone somehow knows what song im talking abouit. then its worth a thread


edit: also some reason i think dolphin is in the band name or song name?

In episode 3 at the end, a song plays for a good 2 minutes as background/filler. I really like it but there are no lyrics said to go google and figure it out so I'm asking you guys.
What's the title?

It's the song where Doug comes back to the club and they are all dancing with this dude in a speedo whos mimicking swimming. Then It keeps playing till ending credits.

thanks in advance
